The most important part of the plumbing in your home is one you almost never see: the water line beneath your home that channels in fresh water from the municipal supply. This is where all your home’s running water originates. Without this water supply, you would have no water to drink, bathe or shower in, clean or cook with. When you turn a tap in your home, you expect water to come out of it.
Water lines can sustain damage or develops clogs like any other part of your plumbing, and you’ll need expert plumbers to fix the line to restore your water supply should this happen. Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. can send plumbers familiar with local building codes and underground utility lines to your home to supply the experienced repairs necessary. For any Winter Park, FL plumbing repairs you need, we can help.
Signs of water line trouble:
- Water pressure drop: If the line isn’t fully broken or blocked, but instead has sprung a leak, one of the early warning signs will be a drop in the water pressure from your faucets.
- Yard or pavement flooding: Depending on where your water line lies, a break will cause flooding either in your lawn or through the sidewalk pavement in front of your house. Even if the flooding is small, like unexpected pools of water, you should call for a plumber to investigate. Be especially aware of this occurring after a major storm, since pipes in Central Florida have been known to break because of lightning strikes.
- High water bills: If you notice an unexpected spike in your water bills that you can’t account for, than it’s possible that a water line leak is behind it. (It could also come from leaks in other places in your house, but you’ll need professionals to find out the source.)
- Water stops entirely: If your water abruptly ceases to come from any faucet, and you haven’t received any warning from the water company about a temporary shut off, then the problem is almost certainly with the water line and you’ll need service before other problems like flooding start.
